First if this has been answered already I'm sorry as I have not yet located this answer to these questions (or they are half answered)
1) Can I build a PDF form that on submit it will upload to a server (the entire pdf file) using PHP code? If so please tell me the best way to accomplish this as I want any user to fill out the pdf and then submit to a specific location of a folder on my site.
2) I know that Adobe Reader v. 6 will not allow people to submit electronically - but am I correct that version 7 to the lastest will allow them to submit the form (via email or FTP if possible)? I keep finding yes/no. I am aware of Adobe Reader Usage Rights that has to be assigned.
Thanks in Advance
If its not possible please let me know as I am researching this
The answer to question 1 is yes, assuming the form is Reader Extended by a LiveCycle Reader Extensions Server (the Extended Usage Rights in Acrobat are not sufficient).
The answer to 2 is yes and no. By e-mail, as long as the user has a client configured through MAPI (such as Outlook on Windows) you can automate the attaching to an e-mail (but not sending - the user still needs to click send). If the user uses a web client like GMail, then no, that can't be automated. And Acrobat does not have built-in FTP functionality.
